When word reached Omari’s ears that the opinionated collective of Black Twitter users was clowning his androgynous wife, the “Being Mary Jane” star lashed out in a series of angry tweets.

From Ebengregory.com:

Women (and men) were shocked to find out “Power” actor Omari Hardwick was married. Over the weekend, a picture surfaced of the eye candy out with wife, publicist Jennifer Pfautch, and their adorable son. The photo was instantly met with an onslaught of online commentators bashing his wife’s looks. The comments ranged from calling her “ugly” to “masculine” to “she looks like Jeremy Scott.”

Quoting Centric:
“On Monday night, Hardwick hopped on Twitter for a long rant on the hateful comments celebrities receive through social media. While he didn’t mention his wife or say he was specifically responding to the hateful comments, considering the timing of it all, it seems like a defense of Pfautch.”
